The Beers!!
Commonwealth Acheron American Pale Ale, 4 pack $17.99
Pale Ale made with Galaxy and El Dorado hops 5.5%-named from one of the 5 rivers of Hades .
American pale ale is a style of pale ale developed in the United States around 1980. American pale ales are generally around 5% abv with significant quantities of American hops, typically Cascade.
Although American brewed beers tend to use a cleaner yeast, and American two row malt, it is particularly the American hops that distinguish an APA from British or European pale ales.
The style is close to the American India Pale Ale, and boundaries blur, though IPAs are stronger and more assertively hopped.
The style is also close to amber ale, though ambers are darker and maltier due to use of crystal malts.

Solace Brewing Check One Two IPA, 4 pack $18.99
Solace Brewing Company is a new production brewery in Loudoun County.
It has a large and picturesque tasting room that is family-friendly, an outdoor area for pets, and is open all week.

Charm City Cinnamon Mead, 500mL $10.99
They make meade so light that they spell it with one less letter. This is not your traditional mead. Our still products are 12% ABV, oak barrel aged, and made with fresh, local ingredients from the region's finest producers. Dryer than you'd expect, and still every bit as smooth as the honey that it was created from.
